If you're a witch, what kind of witch are you?

If you do a little research- there are tons of different types of witches. This didn't used to be the case. But today- with people acknowledging many different ways to believe and not needing to fall in line with one version, no one has to claim a path that doesn't fit them. Some of the various witch identities are:

Solitary Witch- self-explanatory, a solitary practice, no coven and sometimes pulling from different paths.

Eclectic Witch- they dance to the beat of their own drum, making their own truth by grabbing from various paths and crafting their own unique journey.

Secular Witch- witchcraft involvement without the inclusion of a deity or worship.

Green Witch- predominantly herbalism.

Divinatory Witch- mainly focuses on things like Tarot (and other forms of cartomancy), runes, dice, pendulums...

Kitchen Witch- potions and brews being the focal points of their craft. Good old alchemy.

Hereditary Witch- born into a family of practicing witches.

Hedge Witch- spirit realm and astral travel being the spotlight of practice.

*****

There are so many more- I didn't include things like Gardnerian, Alexandrian, Correllian, and other forms of Wicca. I have never been in a coven (aside from the way we use the term on Vampire Rave as just being in an online society) and have no desire to be.

I don't label myself a witch- but many others would. I can be described as a Christo-Pagan as I do go to church... but my involvement in certain practices, if I were to stake a claim, would place in me several categories: Secular, Solitary, Divinatory, and Eclectic, to be sure.

Let us know how you identify if being a witch is your path. If it's not listed- explain what it is.

If I were to put it into one category it would be rather hard, eclectic witch sounds quite universal here and that would be most characteristic of me however I do focus on astral travel mostly so there's that. I haven't used Tarot cards in a while and am no stranger to making potions and herbs. Some of my family members practice some form of energy work such as Reiki, the rest is either familiar with the idea and doesn't shy away from openly discussing it while the other doesn't really approve to put it mildly.

Interesting question, Images. :)

I do not identify as a Witch per se, but a mere practitioner. I know next to nothing about herbs, or brewing potions. Besides, I only conduct rituals, not practice Greater or Lesser Magick.

It is funny how many beings take pride in calling themselves Witches, and I think that the number of Males identifying as a Witch is increasing.

Is it a cool thing ? What if we are headed for the next Inquisition?

If there's an Inquisition en route, there are more witches today than ever- so it wouldn't be a great idea, lol.

When I was younger I was a practioner. I pulled from several of the classifications you listed above, solitary, eclectic, even a little divinatory, as I was very into reading Tarot. Although, I don't know if solitary really fit all that well, as I studied and learned with a few close friends. I woundlt ever have considered us a Coven, but we taught one another, we were there to help and study together, so maybe in a sense we were. But, that was definitely in my youth, mid-to-late teens, early twenties.

These days, faith and spirituality have been hard for me to maintain. I have slowly been finding my way back to what made me happiest: Paganism. And, should I fall back into it like I did before, I'd use the same labels, solitary, eclectic. My friend, who was one I practiced with in my youth, he never left and he's become quite adept at reading runes. He said I would probably be pretty proficient at it, considering how quickly I took to reading Tarot. But, runes are something else entirely. I think I'd like to at least learn, though.

It was actually your posts about Tarot that made me really look at myself and my spirituality, Cartomancer. The way you talked about decks and reading cards reminded me so much of the enjoyment I got out of it when I was younger. It pulled something up in me that I've been ignoring for a long time. I pulled out a few of my old decks and have been doing little readings on myself, holding the cards, getting a good feel for them again. I have actually been thinking about messaging my friend Tommy, which I'll definitely be doing now to see about arranging a time where we could meet up and talk, maybe have him help me shop for a set of runes.

Awesome. I have also been feeling more at peace in coming back to Tarot after so long.

There are a lot of people here who claim to be witches... I thought it would be interesting to find out the categories of their practice. We are all different as similar as we may seem to be. In getting really deep with the Tarot community- I find even there tons of people I have zero in common with as far as interpretations, superstition, and the subjectivity of what a good deck is.

I'm heavy on Secular, light on the Solitary and Eclectic.
I'm atheist above all, but deeply love witchcraft, to the point where I feel like I'm a "non-believing witch", haha. There's a big mix of feminism, coven-love (strong women supporting each other and acting as a family), love of lore and all of those good and pure things.

I'm not a witch. Can I enjoy that the name of this thread reminds me of the Wizard of Oz?

I'm a non believer myself, but I do believe that other people are witches. I guess I believe in repercussions to such stuff.

I would consider myself an Eclectic Witch as I find truth in many different paths. I studied with a Coven for many years but identify as Solitary now.

Somewhere between Solitary and Eclectic Witch. For me it's more important to focus on personal transformation before I even dream about being able to influence the world around me. Plus I really like to be alone.

I have been a solitary practitioner since I started my journey in Witchcraft a few years ago. I mainly consider myself and Eclectic witch, but sometimes I spend more time with specific types of Witchcraft. Lately I have been mostly focused on Lunar and Green Witchcraft.
